Valle Crucis, an entity with no actual recorded geographic boundaries, is a non-incorporated community nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This secluded valley saw its first European settlers during the Revolutionary War.
The Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis, North Carolina is a quaint place to stay in a small mountain community. The inn is housed in a 19th century farm house and has offered people a place to stay since the early twentieth century.
Opened in 1883, it fulfilled customers’ needs from the cradle to the grave…literally. Mast General Store’s location in Valle Crusis almost lives up to the store’s slogan from that time: “if you can’t buy it here, you don’t need it,” indicated in the accompanied photo. As for the general store nuance of yesteryear, that can be perceived in the chicken coop door on the floor (deterrent for dishonest chicken barterers) and a five cent cup of coffee.
